NCAAB Tips and Trends

NIT Title Game: Massachusetts vs. Ohio State


UMass: The Minutemen have trailed by at least 9 points in each of their last 3 games before rallying back to win and now find themselves playing for the NIT title. They seem to be a team of destiny with 6 players from New York on their roster, 3 of whom are seniors. “We have come back a lot this year - what we have done leans on the shoulders of our seniors," UMass head coach Travis Ford said. "You look at those guys and they don’t want our season to end. They are the backbone of our team right now, and I give them a lot of the credit."

UMass is 10-1 SU & 8-3 ATS in its last 11 games overall.

Key Injuries- F Tony Gaffney (3 ppg; knee) is probable.

PROJECTED SCORE: 75 (Side Play of the Day)


Ohio State (-3, O/U 149): The Buckeyes are hoping to finish off this season differently than they did last as they head into another postseason tournament title game. Ohio State lost to Florida in the 2007 national championship game, and freshmen Mike Conley Jr. and Greg Oden left for the NBA. But senior guard Jamar Butler remains, and he has played more games than anybody ever at the school. “This is still a tournament and a way to keep playing,” Butler said. “We have young guys stepping up and we’re playing the best we have all year.”

The OVER is 8-0 in Ohio State's last 8 Thursday games.
The OVER is 7-3 in Ohio State's last 10 neutral site games.

Key Injuries- NONE

PROJECTED SCORE: 74

NBA Tips and Trends

Chicago Bulls at Cleveland Cavaliers


Bulls: The playoffs are pretty much out of reach, so the Bulls are left to play for personal pride the final 8 games of the season. They put up a decent fight against Boston but couldn’t guard the 3-point line and lost Tuesday at the United Center. Chicago is just 2-5 SU in its last 7 games overall and allowing 107 ppg during that stretch. The Bulls crumbled in the fourth quarter last time at the Quicken Loans Center in losing to these Cavs 95-86 in March.

Bulls are 3-7 ATS in their last 10 games overall.
The OVER is 8-3 in Chicago's last 11 games vs. Eastern Conference.

Key Injuries- F Drew Gooden (14 ppg; abdominal) is questionable.

PROJECTED SCORE: 95

Cavs (-7, O/U 197.5): Cleveland has been battling injuries all season long but is enjoying having Delonte West back and available. West had 18 points and a season-high 11 assists in the win against the 76ers over this past weekend. The Cavs are 10-1 SU at home in their last 11 games, and the only setback was a 1-point defeat to the Hornets. LeBron James went off for 37 points the last time he faced the Bulls team in this building.

Home team is 12-4 ATS in the last 16 meetings.
Favorite is 9-3 ATS in the last 12 meetings.
The UNDER is 8-1 in Cleveland's last 9 home games.

Key Injuries- C Ben Wallace (5 ppg; back) is questionable.

PROJECTED SCORE: 102


Houston Rockets at Portland Trail Blazers


Rockets (-5, O/U 183): A few days after they headed out on a 5-game road trip with a chance to move into first place with a win Sunday at San Antonio, the Rockets have losses to the Spurs and Kings and are now in sixth in the West. Houston struggled to slow down the Kings in its most recent loss while also going through some terrible offensive stretches. The Rockets defense has allowed 105 ppg in those defeats, and Blazers forward LaMarcus Aldridge lit them up for 22 points in the last meeting.

Rockets are 22-8-3 ATS in their last 33 Thursday games.
The OVER is 7-3 in Houston's last 10 games vs. Western Conference.

Key Injuries- NONE

PROJECTED SCORE: 94

Blazers: Portland is virtually eliminated from playoff contention and has been playing without its leading scorer in Brandon Roy this entire week. Roy is expected to miss at least 2 more games with a groin injury, and the Blazers had a horrible 85-point offensive performance in their last home game against the Bobcats on Saturday. Portland hasn’t defeated the Rockets since the 2007 season.

Blazers are 3-13 ATS in their last 16 home games.
The UNDER is 7-1 in the last 8 meetings.

Key Injuries- G Brandon Roy (19.3 ppg; groin) is out.

PROJECTED SCORE: 89
